The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Langston University

I have read multiple negative reviews on here and I can say the majority are lies or from people who did not attend school here. Langston is one of the best universities you can attend to get an education. This is an affordable university that allows a student the opportunity to get a degree or two in many different fields. I attended LU from 1999-2003 and I had one of the best experiences of my life. I came from a primarily African American high school in Oklahoma City and I left to attend LU. At my high school there was a feeling of family and camaraderie. LU had the same feeling. from my first day on the yard to my last day at graduation I always felt like I belonged. There is nothing like seeing your own people around you all time all moving towards one common cause....EDUCATION. There is nothing better than going to a university where the president (Ernest L Holloway) stops you outside and ask your name where you are from and just talks to you about school. I can remember this campus before a lot of renovations were made. The first week of school was nothing but parties and people hanging outside getting to know each other. I remember people playing games and having game nights. I remember students supporting each other and helping out their fellow students when they had no food at night. Once I had a flat tire and a guy who really didn't know me stopped to help me change my tire. Go to a PWI and see how you are treated. Why be a number when you can be a name. Why take all of your athletic ability to universities that don't value your culture, who you are as an individual and don't even have your best interest at heart if you don't perform on the court or the field. Even on this day I still talk to the majority of all of my friends made on campus. We are all married now, have families and still return to our Alma Mater. Stop talking negative about this school and if you see a need support financially or by forcing our legislature here in Oklahoma to funnel more dollars to the only HBCU in Oklahoma.

When you're riding your bicycle across the country, and you're hungry, you can make some unusual decisions, as so it was for me and my group. Inside the William H. Hall Student Success Center is one of Langstron's food eateries, and we stopped in there for lunch, and we're glad we did! The staff was extremely friendly. Although we weren't students (obviously from our funny biking gear) the staff and students were very welcoming. The food selection was great, and the prices - even for non-students - was very reasonable. Although I don't know if I'd go out of my way to eat there, it was a great experience, and I thank the Langston staff and students for making is so. If you're a perspective student, the dining experience at Langston is something to look forward to enjoying.
